Footscray & District Poultry Club Inc.(at Bacchus Marsh, Victoria)

Our not-for-profit club, administrated entirely by volunteers, leads the way in Victoria with country hospitality in a city atmosphere, here at Bacchus Marsh. Our members, through keeping and breeding pure breeds of poultry are conserving and preserving the poultry genetic pool, saving many breeds currently on the endangered rare breeds list.

Keeping poultry enables a great family pastime, encouraging children to be outdoors and active whilst encouraging and practicing sustainability, learning to be responsible and focused. This pastime is possible irrelevant of age, agility or ability, creating a form of recreation and involvement for all family and community members.

Footscray (at the Marsh) Poultry Club, has made Bacchus Marsh their home. Over the last eight years we have been renovating the old Produce Hall at the previously referred to, Bacchus Marsh Showgrounds, transforming it into the largest most advanced Poultry Pavilion in Victoria.

Among our membership we have several Poultry Judges, many leading breeders, and members with extensive poultry health and husbandry knowledge.

We are currently looked on as one of the most progressive poultry clubs. Many poultry enthusiasts from all over Victoria as well as other states attend our events.

We hold two shows a year, our Early Show third Saturday each May. and our Annual Show fourth Saturday in July.
